I am already hungry!

One of my dearest friend who is a closet Chef and fellow real estate agent was generous to give me her recipe. Wendy and I have done many real estate transactions together. If you ever want to meet her, please email me at pzweben@elliman.com and I will hook you up!

Wendy Maitland’s Cream of Mushroom soup!
Cost approximately $50, (cheap!), time approximately 45 minutes.
Feeds 8 people

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil (pour in 1 quart sauce pan)
  • 1/2 Spanish onion- chopped
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • About a cup and a half chicken broth
  • 1 Idaho potato, peeled and sliced into about 1/4 inch strips
  • 3 cups sliced mushrooms (aka Pennsylvania Whites)
  • 1.5 cups shitake mushrooms --- no stems
  • 1/4 cup crème fraiche
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Method:

  • Sautee onion in heated olive oil until translucent.
  • Add white wine.
  • Let simmer for a few minutes while slicing potato and mushrooms.
  • Add broth to pot
  • Season with Salt and Pepper
  • When the broth comes to a boil, add the potatoes
  • Cook potato until just tender (not mushy)-about 6 minutes if they're thin enough.
  • Add mushrooms
  • Cook for about 5-8 minutes, until they are tender.
  • Stir in crème fraiche.
  • Let mixture simmer for about 2 minutes.
  • Blend 1/2 the mixture with butter (butter goes right into blender-not melted), with Salt and Pepper to taste. (Very important- only fill your blender half way and be very careful so you to not have a soup explosion)
  • Put the blended mixture back into the pan with the mushrooms, etc, and stir…taste.
  • Serve hot.
